Nuclear Weapons and the Survival of the Homo Sapiens
During the ceremony commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution I expressed my opinion that “The Cuban Revolution, on our small and ignored island, was newly born, but coming into this world just 90 miles from the powerful empire, caused it to test the arrogance of the dominant superpower in our hemisphere and in a large part of the world.” I promised to speak about the statements I had made to the United Nations two days previously. I warned that our struggle would be “long and hard.” For the time being, I must postpone this task. Another subject at the moment is more important.
Our people, as many around the world know, are characterized by their high level of knowledge, which they have achieved during the past five decades, after the country emerged from its semi-colonized and mono-crop producing state and its considerable levels of illiterate and semi-illiterate people with low general education levels and scientific knowledge. The Cuban people had to be fully informed about what nuclear energy could mean for the fate of the human species.
“I think —I said verbatim on September 28— that it might be a good idea to make known some of these ideas about what a nuclear weapon is. I have seen images about what critical mass is, and what its use as a weapon represents: that is to employ the energy that drives the universe for war.” At “3,000 degrees Celsius, practically all metals and materials…” melt. “What would happen then at 10,000 degrees? […] Well, an atomic explosion produced by critical mass could reach millions of degrees.
To give an idea of the destructive power of this type of energy, I would like to add to this Reflection something that Harry S. Truman wrote in his diary on July 25, 1945 about a test made in the state of New Mexico: An experiment in the New Mexico desert was startling, to put it mildly. Thirteen pounds of the explosive caused the complete disintegration of a steel tower 60 feet high, created a crater 6 feet deep and 1,200 feet in diameter, knocked over a steel tower 1/2 a mile away and knocked men down 10,000 yards away. The explosion was visible for more than 200 miles and audible for 40 miles and more.”
In the current stage of the world, when some 200 countries have been recognized as independent states with the right to participate in the United Nations —ridiculous legal fiction—, the only chance to forge a ray of hope is by leading the masses, in a rational and calm way, to the understanding that all the inhabitants of the planet are facing a grave risk.
Within our limited relations, we have had the opportunity, in less than three weeks, to receive two eminent figures. The first one was Alan Robock, an emeritus researcher and professor at Rutgers University, New Jersey. While working with a group of courageous colleagues, the US scientist proved the Nuclear Winter theory and advanced it to its current level. Only 100 of the 25,000 strategic nuclear weapons that exist today would be enough to cause this tragedy, he explained.
The Nuclear Winter theory has shown that “If such weapons did not exist, they could not be used. And at present, there is absolutely no rational argument for their use. If they cannot be used, they must be destroyed. By doing so we would protect ourselves from accidents, mistaken calculations or any bouts of insanity.”
“…Any country that at present may be considering the nuclear option must acknowledge that by adopting such a decision, it would be endangering not only its own population but the entire world.
“… The use of nuclear weapons in the event of a total attack against an enemy would be suicidal due to the anomalous cold and darkness caused by the smoke from the fires generated by the bomb.”
Robock quoted Einstein: “The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.”
My reply to the noble scientist was: “It makes no difference if we know about this, what is needed is for the world to know.”

Message and warning from off-planet
October 4th, 2010
The Earth does tremble at its very core at the possibility that does draw near. For indeed the forces of the shadow have intensified, generating dissension and conflict within your world with such efficiency that many become drawn into the maelstrom, you see. And so a tilt does now begin in the direction of the shadow. It does occur at a most precipitous time. While many eyes are turned toward other directions such as the Land of the Blue Stone that you do know as Afghanistan, Pakistan, and indeed the Land of the Hungry Dragon [North Korea]; it is not seen that the shadow moves beneath the surface and does begin to accumulate necessary elements to bring about upheaval through use of nuclear materials.
Indeed, while these forces do gather, many of those who have chosen the path of Light-Bearer do become drawn precariously close to the edge of the storm, even now, even now in this moment. Some have been sucked into the raging winds. We beseech you – DO NOT BE AMONG THEM. Cast your prayers of the Blue Light at this time toward the land known now in your time as the United Arab Emirates (UAB), the land of the Ancient Pharaohs [Egypt], and to the lands of the Great Bear, now known in your world as Ukraine (once part of the Soviet Union). These are involved in assisting those within your own land who serve the Pachyderms and now would seek to create an event that would weaken the one who now holds the seat of power [Obama]. If it is successful, greater destruction, chaos, and anarchy would follow, not merely in your land, but in many, many places around this world.
Do not allow yours [Light of the Starseed] to falter – not in this hour. As the time draws near we shall return [to message] on the new moon, yet it is important that you know now that two stages of the four have been successfully completed. [Shamaan is briefly shown terrible visions of the consequences of a nuclear event.] This one [Shamaan] has seen some of what would befall your world – the suffering that indeed would be great, great, you see. We will not make the choice, we may not make the choice, yet the choice may be influenced by your work, prayers, the presence, indeed, the focus upon the spiritual Light of the Way of the Heart, held in the Eye of the Storm. DO be among those who shall not allow the terrible things that might result were there not enough to hold steady in the Eye of the Storm. We shall leave this one [Shamaan] in a state of calm – the images shall be veiled for now.
Daily, twice daily between now and the new moon,* send forth the Blue Light, yes, to all, but especially to that land of the ancient Pharaohs [Egypt, United Arab Emirates (UAB)], and the Great Bear [Ukraine], that they may not collaborate with others in destroying such great beauty [this planet – they know not what they do, as their action could lead to the planet’s destruction through setting in motion a cascade of destructive events].

You can will to stop it! Believe me.
